Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 15 Title 5 Excavation & Fill in Navigable Waters
Article 25 Tidal Wetlands
Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification

Project is Located:

Queens, Queens County

Project Description:

Applicant proposes to construct a new 4-foot, 6-inch by 3-foot, 6-inch stormwater outfall to the East River, located approximately 120 feet north of the intersection of 5th Avenue and College Place, within Hermon A. Macneil Park, in the borough of Queens. The outfall is designed to accommodate flow from newly constructed separated storm sewers within the College Point neighborhood. As a part of the overall proposed drainage improvements, the existing combined sewer system outfall (CSO) to the East River at this location will be abandoned. The stormwater outfall headwall structure would be integrated with the existing stone seawall. A stone apron splash pad will be constructed to attenuate flow velocities and minimize scour and erosion. The splash pad measures 25 feet long, and between 14 and 30 feet wide. Permanent impacts to the NYSDEC-regulated tidal wetlands from construction of the splash pad will be mitigated through the planting of Spartina alterniflora on the northern shoreline of Macneil Park.
